Waiting on Wednesday #30

Cress (Lunar Chronicles, #3)
Cress by Marissa Meyer
Series: The Lunar Chronicles, #3
Publisher: Fiewel and Friends
Publication Date: February 4, 2014
Rapunzel's tower is a satellite. She can't let down her hair - or her guard.

In this third book in the bestselling Lunar Chronicles series, Cinder and Captain Thorne are fugitives on the run, with Scarlet and Wolf in tow. Together, they’re plotting to overthrow Queen Levana and her army.

Their best hope lies with Cress, who has been trapped on a satellite since childhood with only her netscreens as company. All that screen time has made Cress an excellent hacker – unfortunately, she’s just received orders from Levana to track down Cinder and her handsome accomplice.

When a daring rescue goes awry, the group is separated. Cress finally has her freedom, but it comes at a high price. Meanwhile, Queen Levana will let nothing stop her marriage to Emperor Kai. Cress, Scarlet, and Cinder may not have signed up to save the world, but they may be the only ones who can.

O.O Isn't this cover beautiful? And the synopsis? SO MUCH LOVE. I really hope that this one is even better than Scarlet, which received a phenomenal 5, am I feeling six stars? We'll see!


  1. LOL, feeling the six stars too! I still haven't read Scarlet but I AM SO DYING to and I UBER LOVED Cinder!! So I'm pretty excited for Cress and RIGHT?!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE THE COVER XD

  10. YES INTERVENTION TIME XP I'll probably end up reading it a year late like Cinder X_x but i know i'll <3 it if you did!

  11. I'm so excited for this whole series! I haven't read any of them, but the more good things I hear about them, the higher up on me "To Read" list they move!

  12. I haven't had the chance to read the previous books in the series but I have them on my to-read list and I hope I get to them soon. Great pick! I hope you enjoy reading it when it comes out.

    Come check out my WOW post.

  13. CRESS!! I am so excited for this book, it's almost ridiculous.

    Fabulous choice :D

  14. A Rapunzel retell--how fun! The cover is lovely and it sounds like it will be a good read. Thanks for sharing it.

  15. All man, I really want to read this series. I don't know what I've been waiting on (ha ha, bad pun… couldn't help myself). Seriously, though, I've heard so many good things about it I think I'm going to bump it up next on my list.

    By the way, I love your blog style and your taste in books! I signed up for emails, and look forward to reading posts from you in the future. :-)

  16. I'm also not oh so patiently waiting for Cress. If I could read it now I would be. I think the cover is beautiful and I'm so excited to read this book.
